She has had over 15 sedated procedures, 6 MRIs, 2 CT scans, Over 45 days NPO, multiple Med changes, 20 NG tube removals/insertions, Multiple ECHOs/EKGs, but surprisingly only 1 AMBO ride ever.

She is possibly looking at open heart surgery if we can't get her aortic root to stop in enlarging. And she has a pectus repair surgery coming up within the next year or two.
She is a warrior and is super strong. and she loves softball.
